The dolphiness

Lyrics : Odiseas Elitis
Music : Linos Kokotos
Singer : Michalis Violaris




'Tween Spetse and Hydra in the open sea
Up pops a dolphiness in front of me
Hey babe, I say, where΄s your petticoat?
Thus undressed you are to seek your boyfriend!

Come on babe, climb in, we΄re off,
And five times round the skies we went.

I have no boyfriend she replied
Just came to see what I could see.
She dives down deep and disappears
Then up and holds the boat again.

Come on babe, climb in, we΄re off,
And five times round the skies we went.

O Lord forgive me, as I bend to look
 this wicked one gives me a kiss
 like lemon trees her breasts smell nice
and all that΄s blue shines through her eyes.

Come on babe, climb in, we΄re off,
And five times round the skies we went.



A sunny song to begin the week.
A sunny heart, body and mind to all


love, Irene
